  1. Took mine for a little 1900 mile stroll this weekend.

  2. Took the Concours out for 400 plus miles today. I’m definitely getting comfortable with the big girl. Dragging the left peg was an eye opener.

  3. Rode with @Likwid for a few miles today. Ran into a slew of OR.net miscreants in New Concord. Zoomed past my crash site and came across a white tractor hauling a tanker trailer. Kind of creepy but at least it didn't hit me. Had a pork sundae in Bolivar with Matt and then scurried home before the rest of society rolled out of bed.

  4. So last night as we were leaving Coal Smokehouse I pointed to this really shitty Econolodge and said that's our hotel. Wife was not happy, and I don't balme her. Went one exit north to our real hotel....couple hours later @2talltim checks in on Facebook...at the Econolodge.

  5. Not my bike but the bike I’m riding to the gap Thursday. Getting everything looked over to make sure it’s ready. Dad and I are riding down and meeting my wife and mother for a long weekend at Gatlinburg, but we’re gonna ride for a little bit.

  7. Rode it 360+ miles at a sane-ish pace. Took 76W to Lodi and picked up 83/78/377/550/26/260/800 and 77N to the house. Left the house with a full tank and didn't see my low fuel warning until Barnesville. I did stop in McConnelsville for water and a Snickers. Saw 92 degrees on the dash at one point. Was a warm one but glad to be back in the game. Time for Skyway and ice cream.

  9. I left the house at 7am and headed west toward 21S/585/83 and met a friend near New Concord. We then proceeded to roll across 40/265/146/800/148/26/145/556/78/536/260 back to Caldwell where we went our separate ways home. I finished my day tooling around 78/379/265 when I finally hopped on 77N and droned home on autopilot. I put in 366 miles according to my odometer. So, probably closer to 340. Great day. Little chilly at first, but heated gear makes this weather just about perfect for day jaunts to hotdog land.

  10. Took the FJR out for a ride today. Needed to make sure that everything was good after my hose and coolant replacement. 270 miles, I picked up 83 south at Millersburg, followed it down to 78 into McConnellsville. 669 north to 22 to 668. Great ride, little traffic.

  13. I bought new Alpinestars Wake Air jacket and pants from @RidersDiscount. That should do well for the summer and I feel confident the TechAir vest will adequately provide an extra layer of safety in case of a get off or random idiot behind the wheel. I like the vest a lot. Its unobtrusive and simple to use. Plus, I dont have to use it with any specific jackets. It's a stand alone product that can be used inside any jacket that has room for the airbag to deploy. It's no more expensive than a quality helmet. Retail is $700 and after my $26k helicopter ride in April...that's a bargain. Besid

  14. Sorry to hear about your family troubles. Every case of senility-related dementia manifests itself differently, so my personal experience may not apply... My Dad suffered from senile dementia--very different from Alzheimer's disease--the last 3-4 years. Strangely, although he was "diagnosed" by his doctor as having Alzheimer's, he never descended into the profound dementia characterized by anger, confusion, inability to recognize friends and family. It was a progressive decline in mental acuity but certainly not in a linear fashion. He had some very good days and some bad days that be

  17. Mid-Ohio hosted their first motorcycle PTR of 2021 yesterday. I took my DSLR and did some HIKING to get some photos in.

  21. So saw this at Barber today, blew my mind. 2 cylinder, connecting rods are hooked to the back wheel with an offset to make it go. Valves are controlled by a similar offset system. Built in 1894.

  22. This will be a return trip. We did it 4 years ago on the CBR. We trailered down, however. This time I want her to get the whole effect.

  25. Got the Brembos swapped from the wreck to my bike. Hardest part was stripping the old wrecked fairing from the donor. I'll never own a bike with a fairing. Naked FTW!

  26. Sounds like toy Tetris! I have enough problems fitting my bike in the garage with the cars, lol. Some day I'll live in a garage with bedrooms.

  27. Installed new axle tonight. Of course I had to test it. First test was to compare weight. The original weighed 15.4lbs. The new $68 EBay China made weighed 15lbs. That was reassuring. Then I hit the track and it had no issues.

  29. I bought some spare parts for it - a compete donorcycle. I thought I had done a lot of performance upgrades to my Bandit until I saw this one. Keep an eye on this thread for more of me bragging as I transfer parts to mine. When I find parts that aren't model specific, I'll post them for sale here.

  30. Spent the weekend at NCM, had a good time. There were a few knuckleheads in A group though unaccustomed to signaling pit-in and generally swoopy/slow. I pretty much spent the day working on brake markers and tip-in points rather than pushing pace. I also found out I need to go down another spring weight in the front, seems I lost too much weight over the winter.

  31. Got back yesterday from an 11 day motorcycle trip to Canyon Lake TX. Lots of rain in Texas. Made it to Luckenbach too. Retirement life is good 👍

  32. Wife and I did a nice Sunday ride: Hocking-Chesterhill and return. Had Brunch at the 555Diner. It's great to see a small restaurant was able to survived the Wuhan/Fauci restrictions and stay open. Great curvy roads, very light traffic and made it home just as it was getting hot. Great food and service. Love that place. https://www.triplenickeldiner.com/

  33. Amanda called me while I was stopped in B-ville for fuel. A crash happened in the front of the house today involving a motorcycle and a car. She knew it wasn't me but it was enough to trigger a bit of PTSD emotion. She called so she could hear my voice and know I was ok. I am glad I was able to answer the phone. She is a little more emotional than I am at this point, but I worked through some mental hurdles myself. I feel better having put in a solid day of riding. I have been putting off getting on the bike for fear of no longer being able to enjoy myself behind the bars. I put that to bed to

  34. Amanda can show you. Edit: I realize this comment might be construed as inappropriate in nature without context. She is in vet tech school and eager to earn her VDM. She is aiming to land a gig taking care of cows and livestock. Kitties and puppies just aren't her bag, baby.

  35. Even some track guys use it instead of the tech air race. Because the a*'s are having production issues with getting enough tech air race's produced due to microchips (or so I've heard). STG offered to do a swap with my tech air race (ordered in December) to the tech air 5. But considering I spent $1600+ on a suit I want my LED's to work and have my 2 deployments.
